Formulated to improve the appearance and texture of the skin by increasing cell turnover, the physician-strength Epionce Peel System provides the same corrective benefits as a Jessner's with minimal downtime. There are two parts: sal-e and mal-e. The steps can be used as standalone treatments or together for medical/clinical settings where the medical professional can customize the treatment series to the needs of the patient. The Epionce Peel System
improves skin aging, hyperpigmentation, acne and rosacea.
For a deeper peels, Dr. Bailey
uses solutions made up of acids (AHAs and TCAs) or phenols.
These peels are helpful for those individuals with facial blemishes, wrinkles and uneven skin pigmentation. They may also remove pre-cancerous skin growths, soften acne facial scars and even control acne.
Your chemical peel can be safely performed in Dr. Bailey's office. Peels can take from 15 minutes to two hours. Dr. Bailey will explain to you the differences between the solutions and will suggest the particular peel that's right for you.
The solution is applied to clean facial skin: either to the entire face or to parts of your face. When using the stronger solutions, Dr. Bailey may apply a petroleum jelly covering to your face first. During a chemical peel, you'll feel a stinging sensation as the peel solution is applied, but this feeling will quickly pass. Some peels require several treatments; the stronger ones usually do not. Sedation may be necessary with the deeper peels.
All chemical peels carry some uncertainty and risk. Chemical peel is normally a safe procedure when it is performed by a qualified, experienced cosmetic surgeon.
Patients who have a TCA peel are advised to avoid sun exposure for several months after treatment to protect the newly formed layers of skin. Even though TCA is milder than phenol, it may also produce some unintended color changes in the skin.
With a phenol peel, the new skin frequently loses its ability to make pigment (that is, tan). This means that not only will the skin be lighter in color, but you'll always have to protect it from the sun. Phenol may pose a special risk for patients with a history of heart disease. It's important that you make your surgeon aware of any heart problems when your medical history is taken.
It is also possible that phenol will cause some undesired cosmetic results, such as uneven pigment changes. Certain modified phenol peels are gentler and may be preferred in some circumstances.
is the first-ever non-invasive ultrasound device approved for aesthetics, which combines ultrasound imaging with focused ultrasound therapy to provide reliable noninvasive lifting of the skin.
- This is the first and only energy-based device for aesthetics to receive an indication for lift from the FDA.
- This is the first and only in-office aesthetics device that enables visualization of tissue beneath the skin's surface, using time-honored ultrasound.
- This is the first and only non-surgical procedure to be able to focus energy at prescribed depths that enable significant lifting of skin tissue.
Ultherapy is a new category of treatment because it combines visualization beneath the skin's surface and precise delivery of ultrasound energy to reliably and significantly lift the skin and tighten its underlying support.
- With over 2000 patients treated worldwide, Ultherapy has been shown to produce significant lifting of lax skin.
- In the pivotal trial, noticeable improvement occurred in nearly 9 out of 10 patients (86 percent) resulting in less hooding or skin laxity on the upper eyelid and a more open, refreshed appearance overall.
- Study patients noted lifting, tightening and firming in other areas of the face and neck as well, such as the cheeks and along the jawline.
- Results developed gradually over a 90-day period following treatment and were still noticeable in patients assessed at 10 months after treatment.
- Ultrasound energy is delivered to desired depths below the surface of the skin, while leaving the top layers including the epidermis completely unaffected.
- The face and neck procedure triggers the body's natural healing response, resulting in new and improved collagen, which gradually tightens and lifts the skin tissue over time.
- Regeneration of supportive collagen fibers can help the skin hold up against future gravitational effects.
- Because it affects the deep layers of tissue, it is compatible with other cosmetic procedures addressing more superficial issues.
Ultherapy is further developing its DeepSEE technology platform for a host of additional applications that are valued by patients and clinicians worldwide.
- The Ultherapy System affords an incremental measure of control through its imaging and programmable depth of energy deposition that will have relevance to other indications.
- Additional clinical trials are currently being pursued to leverage the breadth of medical and aesthetic applications for the Ultherapy System.
